Book Description

22 July 2008
YOUR COMPLETE POCKET GUIDE TO GL VALUES Based on the proven science of the Glycemic Index (GI) but easier to use, Glycemic Load (GL) dieting is the easiest, most powerful tool for losing weight, controlling diabetes and following a healthy day-to-day diet. GL values give a more accurate measure of the way different foods affect your body by adjusting the GI score for portion size. For example, an orange is a much healthier snack than a candy bar, but the orange has a higher GI value (42) than the candy bar (41). But when adjusted to the real-world portion, the healthier snack becomes obvious--the orange has a low GL value of 4 compared to the high GL value of 26 for the candy bar! -GL, GIPlus calories, carbs and fat for over 800 popular foods. -User-friendlyConvenient design and straightforward A to Z lists -No more mathEach food's serving size is already computed into the GL score -Glycemic ResponseAdvice on different types of foods and your body's reaction to each one, from meats and vegetables to breads and fruits.

3.0 out of 5 stars not the best format 16 Jun 2013
By Inky
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this book is not set out particularly well, it has far too many band names and the weights aren't standardised. There's no reason to the order, not alphabetical. One can eventually navigate around it but it takes too long to find the category and one wants to go into the kitchen and eat bread and jam to alleviate the boredom!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic 11 Aug 2012
By AlexS
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I now have 3 of these - 1 each for the kitchen, car and briefcase. A very good 'handy' guide (small notebook size). It's v good for relative comparison - eg orange juice vs croissant, or cheerios vs bran flakes

2.0 out of 5 stars The Glycemic Load 20 May 2012
By Lee
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Interesting book but have not used it much as it is quite difficult to find items within it. It is also challenging to work out how much you "noramally" use as this is not always stated.

2.0 out of 5 stars Glycemic Load of stuff to confuse you 29 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Liked the bumf for this book which made me buy it. Wish I hadn't bothered! The info is confusing, although I understand (I think) the science behind it. I should have just downloaded the GI info I wanted from the internet. On the bookshelf gathering dust (what IS the GI and GL for dust?).

Format:Paperback
This is a simple book that is easy to read and tells you all you need to know about GL once you understand what GL and GI are.
